About The Book

Solving problems on pig farms doesn't get any easier with the passage of time. This is an intensely practical book which deals with pig production problems all over the world. As well as compiling a series of checklists, the author provides the reasons why the actions should be considered and, where available, gives the back-up evidence from trial work.

Equally important are the econometrics (cost-effectiveness) of the advice given - the author is a pioneer in this field.
